I am curious to know what the average All Mountain bikes weigh. I have a Heckler that I have lightened up to make it more of a AM/Trailbike and gotten it down to 30.5lbs. When I started it was about 35 lbs. It gets expensive very quickly to drop weight and still have duralble parts.

What bike do you ride and how much does it weigh?

I own a Banshee Wraith, and i`m sure it weights more than 32lbs. When i`m climbing i know i could have a lighter built, but honnestly i prefer not to know the exact weight.

Kona Bear

really its more of a trail bike, but it always makes me laugh when I pick up my buddies BLT and it weighs 2lbs less than my bike. My bike is setup with air shocks, but its got Mech discs and that kona frame doesn't help much;) ...oh but I Love the beefiness.:)

It's a little AM and a little XC. Early Christmas present from the wife, Yeti 575 Race disk, 29 lbs with pedals. Only non-stock item is my CK headset. Now if this 45 year old brain can get the guts to really ride it;)

sub 35 lb bikes are not AM bikes, they are XC bikes
If sub 35lb aren't AM, do we need a seperate trail bike thread? Because XC weenies wouldn't ride anything over 25lb. Maybe we could have categories for every 2lb increment. Then at 37lbs we could have a light freeride (LFR) class or would that be heavy all mountain (HAM); at 33-35lb we could have light all mountain extreme(LAME). Just think of what that would do for the marketing divisions of bike companies: the same frame with different components and weights could each be in a different class;)

Maybe I am just confused as to what the F is AM anyhow?

I am on the light end of the spectrum, but my 2003 Spotty is very functional especially for my weight (155). It has 180/160 Disk brakes and 2.4/2.25 tires (front/back). Here's the details, add 0.5-0.75 pounds for grease and left out nuts and bolts. With a lighter 5" travel frame a sub-25 pounder would be very feasible.

BRAKES Brakes Complete Magura Marta (180/160 tuned alu/titanium) 690
DRIVE TRAIN
TNT Titanium BB 160
Race Face LP 170 mm with Sugino rings titanium/aluminum bolts 590
Pedals Frog (steel) 250
Rear Der Sachs Tuned alu 191
Front Der (tuned alu) 126
SRAM 850 11-32 260
Chain (SRAM PC99) 275​
CONTROLS
Grips 75
HandleBar Easton Monkeylite HR 165
Shifters (Sachs R cut and tuned alu bolts) 135
Shifter Cables (Clarks) 150

agreed...there are not nearly enough labels for the various types of bikes out there. and what about a XC bike rider who has the skills to do aggro stuff....does that make his bike all of a sudden a Light FR bike?
